Non-surgical “quick fixes” in cosmetic surgery…

Posted by Jessica Hoffman on June 5, 2009

Cosmetic fillers (Dermal Fillers) have been mostly known in our industry as a quick, short-term solution for decreasing the appearance of wrinkles, enhancing lips and improving overall appearance. In today’s economy, this has proven to be a more “budget friendly” way to be “on top of your game”, look your best and boost confidence. In as little as fifteen minutes, under one-thousand dollars these fillers have the ability to make you feel/look years younger! The procedures are non-invasive, giving you the ability to return to “life” the same day…

Over the last few years, we have been finding more creative ways to use these fillers. Amazing results… without surgery.

  • non-surgical rhinoplasy (nose job)
  • jaw reduction
  • more defined cheek bones
  • filling in “hollowed out eyes”
  • reshaping, plumping earlobes

These are just a few of the newer procedures we use on a daily basis! Please visit our website to view before and after pictures of some of these procedures!

We will work with you and design a package to give you long-term results, while working within your budget. Of course, financing is available  to help make your wishes a reality.

If you have any questions, please e-mail our practice either through our website or directly to info@drgenter.com .

Botox™ Jaw Reduction (Non-Surgical Jaw Reduction)

Posted by drbg on August 20, 2008

Excessively wide jaws that create a “squared off” lower face is a common problem. While a strong jaw may be desirable in males, females dislike this appearance.  In the past surgery was the only remedy, but now we have fabulous non-surgical solutions.  If you feel the angle of your jaw as you clench down, you can feel a mucscle bulging outward.  This muscle, called the masseter, is often the primary cause of the excessive jaw width.  Injections with Botox™ can significantly reduce the size of these muscles and narrow the lower half of the face. Your ability to chew is not weakened.  A side benefit is that the cheeks may be highlighted.  As you can see below, the results can be quite profound .  I just love being able to help people with this problem so easily.   Call our office for more information at 215-572-7744 or email us at info@drgenter.com.

“Scarless” Trans-Umbilical Breast Augmentation (TUBA)

Posted by drbg on September 14, 2007

I am happy now to be offering trans-umbilical breast augmentation (TUBA) to appropriate patients. With an intra-umbilical incision, saline implants can be tunneled under the skin to the breasts where they can be positioned in a submuscular pocket. This will produce exactly the same result as an incision at or on the breast, but the scar is virtually invisible within the umbilicus. This technique can also be used to insert breast implants through the abdominal incision during an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). TUBA cannot be used with silicone implants because these implants are pre-filled with a thick gel, require larger incisions for insertion, and cannot be placed through thin tunnels.

For more information please feel free to call my office at 215-572-7744 or email us.  My web site, www.drgenter.com has lots of information.

Non-Surgical “Nose Job”

Posted by drbg on July 6, 2007

Most people are aware that an operation called rhinoplasty (nose job) is useful for enhancing the nose. This involves reduction of the nasal hump, refinement of the nasal tip, and narrowing of the nose to maintain proper proportions. Most people are not aware, however, that fillers can be used non-surgically to enhance the nasal shape. By injecting a filler above and below a mild nasal hump, the nasal bridge is straightened with a completely non-invasive procedure. Popular fillers for this  are  Juvéderm™,  Restylaneä , Radiesse™, and Artefill®.  Artefill® is the newest available filler which, according to the company, may last for five years. While a rhinoplasty operation produces a permanent result, these non-surgical enhancements are an excellent trade-off to avoid the expense, trauma, and down time that surgery requires. I am  pleased that we have so many options to offer patients.  For more information call my office at 215-572-7744 or email us at info@drgenter.com.  Also feel free to look at our website, www.drgenter.com.
